Hello Iím Tom,

I am currently waiting for a online course to start next week, Iíve began the cross over from listening to start the journey to transmit, I am nervous about it as I have only ever spoken over the radio when I was doing flying lessons (that stopped when kids took the money, over 7 years ago &#128514.

Iíve ordered my foundation book and a Baofeng UV5R III.

I am wondering what advice people have and also what licence free frequencies I can use in the mean time that I can practice and build confidence in using the radio?
